    Actress Rachel Bloom has teamed up with Science Guy Bill Nye to debut an LGBT sex anthem on the new Netflix series Bill Nye Saves the World. Bloom, perhaps best known for her role in the sitcom Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, proceeds to give a performance of a song titled My Sex Junk, which includes lyrics like: This world of ours is so full of choice. But must I choose between only John or Joyce? Are my options only hard or moist? My vagina has its own voice. Other lines in the performance, which features Nye behind a DJ booth and a...

    The MSNBC of sports ESPN used to be the crown jewel in the Disney Corporations portfolio. It was thought to be the network cable subscribers couldnt - and wouldnt - live without, so it was a perennial cash-cow. Even if the movies, toys, and theme parks underperformed, ESPN could be counted on to generate mountains of Mouse-moolah. Maybe thats why Keith Olbermanns twice-former network thought infusing sports coverage with ever-increasing levels of left-wing political content was a good move. After all, if the ratings are bulletproof, why not let the biased, poorly-informed, political opinions fly?

    ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Disney executives emphasized the economic impact of the brand new attraction at Animal Kingdom called Pandora: World of Avatar. Not only has it created hundreds of new jobs but it would be more money that those new workers will put back into the local economy. Walt Disney World has 73,000 cast members today, serves as the largest single employer in the United States, said Senior Vice President of Walt Disney World Parks Jim MacPhee. All of those cast members live, work, and play here in Central Florida. And so this ability to add incrementally...

    Could Apple buy Disney? It would be a huge deal, worth hundreds of billions of dollars and that's what analysts are speculating about on Thursday. Research from RBC Capital Markets says such a merger would produce a "tech/media juggernaut like no other" the combination of the biggest tech company in the world and a near-century-old cultural titan. "The resultant company would be massive, with enough cash and balance sheet capacity to change the nature of the hardware, service, and content industries," the analysts wrote in a note to investors....

    Right after Trump was elected on November 9, Evans tweeted, This is an embarrassing night for America. Weve let a hatemonger lead our great nation. Weve let a bully set our course. Im devastated. This tweet didnt sit well with some of his Twitter followers. Granted, its an easy thing to say as a privileged white male. Because there are plenty of people oppressed and victimized and in jeopardy at this stage.

    Beauty and the Beast is joining the billion-dollar club at the worldwide box office. Director Bill Condons update of Disneys classic 1991 animated film likely will achieve the milestone by Thursday. (The entry of The Fate of the Furious in a handful of foreign markets on Wednesday is clouding the forecast.) On Tuesday, Beauty, starring Emma Watson as Belle, grossed $9.7 million for a worldwide total of $993.2 million. The tentpole has earned $435.9 million domestically and $557.3 million overseas, led by China ($85.2 million) and the U.K. ($75.3 million). Disney has plenty of reason to celebrate. Beauty and the...

    In Indonesia, 212 is the number used to denote a specific mass protest from 2nd December last year. Hundreds of thousands of Muslims marched against the Christian governor of Jakarta, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, known as Ahok, over allegations of blasphemy regarding his use of the Quran in campaigning against opponents. The march was organised, in part, with the National Movement to Safeguard the Indonesian Ulema Councils Fatwa. It was pretty hardline conservative and the protest demanded the government prosecute and jail Ahok based on the councils fatwa, declaring him to be a blasphemer.

    As reported extensively by Breitbart News, ESPN has suffered severe losses in cable subscriptions over the last few years, the repercussion of which will rear its ugly head in the form of significant cutting of on-air talent in the near future. According to comments made Thursday by ESPNs Jim Miller on SI Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch, dozens of employees will soon join the unemployment lines. The way that Ive heard itand Ive kind of run the numbers on it, I think were looking at between 40 and 50 people, Miller said. And look, theres a lot of uncertainty about...

    Having bought premium tickets in advance of the "gay moment" revelation, I ended up seeing Disney's remake of Beauty and the Beast. No point in wasting good money over an alleged 2-second problem in a 2-hour movie. FWIW, I saw the standard-format 2D version. WARINING: SPOILERS. Not that you're really going to find them spoiling, since you already know the story and the hysteria, but if you're worried about spoilers anyway then stop here already. Overall, it was a worthy remake of the hit animated film we all recall. The new generation is growing up with photorealistic animation (vs hand-drawn...

    While Disney was creating magic onscreen with their live-action retelling of the Beauty and the Beast tale, Indian artisans were weaving their own form of magic offscreen through Belles wardrobe. Sinad OSullivan, assistant costume designer of the movie, will have you know that doing justice to the eighteenth century aesthetic is no small feat. When it came to commissioning exquisite French floral designs for Belles costumes, she spread her web wide and of course, caught on to the good artisans of Bhuj, Gujarat. As part of her commitment to the Who made my clothes initiative, OSullivan shared the story of...

To those smugsters, I ask, How will you determine whether the burly, bearded, bulging-biceped person in the womens restroom or locker room is a member of the trans cult or a predator pretending to be a member of the trans cult? Please read this short blog post from liberal California mom Kristen Quintrall whose eyes were (partially) opened by an experience in the womens restroom at Disneyland: I didnt know if I was going to write this...

It was the last attraction overseen by Walt Disney, opening three months after his death.

    The classic 1946 French version of Beauty and the Beast (La Belle et la Bte) featured an opening epigraph that explained the concept behind director Jean Cocteaus live-action fairy tale: Children believe what we tell them. They have complete faith in us. That faith gets compromised in the new live-action musical Beauty and the Beast. Its attempt to sneakily indoctrinate children (and adults) into Disney Corporation banality recasts the nature of parent-child (and Hollywood-consumer) relations so that that bond is subsumed in state-sponsored political correctness. This new version with its feminist Belle (Emma Watson), a crude, chauvinist-male Beast (Dan...
